  • I'm confused, Adrian !

    Downloaded and installed [b]FF 4.0b4[/b] from the FTP server, and then configured about:config as recommended in your earlier post. When I then check about:support, however, I see the following under the heading [b]Grafics[/b] : ?Direct2D enabled false? ! Does this mean that Direct2D is enabled or not ?...

      @mhenriday : That would be off. Earlier articles indicated that it wouldn't be on by default so brave folks like you could try it at your own risk.

      • My point was, Rinzai,

        that I followed the procedure outlined by [b]Adrian[/b] in order to enable this feature, but having done so, I now find myself uncertain as to whether I succeeded !...

      Someone seems to know where the nightlies are kept!!!!

      Once the final version of Firefox 4 is out, I will have some serious cleaning of `/opt` to do. All 4 betas, and at least 30 nightlies (to date) to get rid of.

    I am running it to help test it, and I love the new interface. It also "feels" much snappier. It hasn't crashed on me once yet, either.
